We’ve speculated, we’ve heard rumors, and now it seems we to be true: Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel are once again friends.
The former Real Housewives of New York co-stars are officially on their way back to being BFF’s following the death of Jill’s husband, Bobby Zarin.
“Jill and Bethenny have truly made up, and Bethenny has been there for Jill more than any other Housewife,” a source tells Us Weekly. “Bethenny has spent a lot of time with Jill at her apartment and has called her every day. She has gone above and beyond for Jill and Jill is so grateful.”
Adding,“Bethenny is in a different place in life right now; she has a child, and being a mom has softened her. She also realizes that what she went through with Jill pales in comparison to what other Housewives have put her through … Bethenny has ended her beef with Jill once and for all.”
Rumors of their rekindled friendship first arose when Bethenny shockingly attended Bobby’s funeral earlier this month and had an emotional reunion with Jill.
“Jill invited the show to memorialize Bobby and capture some footage of his beloved friends and family outside the funeral,” the source explains. “However, Jill and the producers weren’t expecting Bethenny to come. That caught everyone by surprise.”
Things are so good between Bethenny and Jill that Jill is thinking about returning to RHONY. Jill left RHONY after season 4 in 2011 and made a brief appearance during season 9.
“Bethenny told Jill that she’s welcome back on the show and they have been in discussions about it.”
Meanwhile, Jill is still reeling from losing her husband of 18-years and opened up living without him during an appearance on her sister’s podcast.
“I have good days and bad days,” Jill revealed on an episode of The Lisa Wexler Show. “It comes in waves. I just don’t know how I can go on. I don’t know how I can make it without Bobby … Without Bobby, there’s no Jill.”
I love this news. Jill and Bethenny have always been one of my favorite Real Housewives friendships, and I’ve wished for years that they would make up. I’d love to Jill back on RHONY for sure! Hopefully, all of this is true, and we will see Jill and Bethenny’s friendship again on RHONY very soon.
